On the way to Savai'i
The past few days we all went to our permanent sites for a site visit. It was rough at first to not be around ANY of the people I have been around for 24/7.
I was away from my training village, host family and TPCV friends. My new family seems great and I already love my school!
My school needs help and they seem to be excited about having a Peace Corps Volunteer, which is very important to me. I have heard some horror stories from other volunteers about becoming a "tea bitch" and I am NOT going to let that happen.
Some Volunteers have their own houses either on a family's property or their own.. I will be living in a room inside a family's house. I would be happy either way!
My village is bigger than the training village and full of lava rocks. I do not have a beach close to my house, (and by close I mean the beach is a ten minute walk and it is not in my backyard like the last one) which is the ONLY thing I am bothered about nor do I have running water. I will be taking bucket showers for the next 2 years. (I am not sure how I will get my drinking water yet but I am not worried and neither should you be!)

I am very very excited to get started at my site! I can not wait to return and begin my official two years!
